Being a tourist town, Nadi’s restaurants offer almost every style of international cuisine, though there’s just one traditional Fijian restaurant, in Denarau. Prices at all independent restaurants are very reasonable, with mains seldom topping F$40, although resort restaurants tend to be overpriced. Most of the resorts on Denarau Island offer themed buffet dinners for between F$55 and F$75 per person; you can also experience a Fijian lovo night (around F$60 per person), traditional food cooked in an underground oven at the Sofitel Fiji Resort on Thursday and Sheraton Fiji Resort on Saturday. For lunch, the Downtown area has plenty of good affordable restaurants, especially for sampling Indian dishes; one of the best options is the free lunch provided by the Sri Siva Subrahmanya Swami Temple – head towards the trestle tables at the rear of the temple (visitors can make a donation but there’s no obligation). The most popular places for dining out at night are along the Queens Rd between Namaka and Martintar, an otherwise dull light industrial area, and at Port Denarau, with its fine-dining restaurants, marina views and inflated prices.
